We recently held a competition for young hearing impaired children at a school in Bury St Edmunds, to design a charity Christmas card.
In November, the children at the Hearing Impaired Unit at Westgate Primary School, Bury St Edmunds were busy designing Christmas tree masterpieces in the hope of winning our competition. The prize was to have their picture front and centre on our annual charity Christmas card, which was delivered to all our patients and sold to raise funds for Hearing Dogs For Deaf People.
Our staff judged all of the entries and provided the children with Christmassy prizes. The winning entrant was Matthew (aged 6) who was pleased as punch to find out he had won.
All of the entries were displayed our flagship practice in Ipswich, as part of a festive and colourful window display.
Karen Finch, Managing Director and founder of The Hearing Care Centre said “We have thoroughly enjoyed working with the children at Westgate Primary School. The money they have helped us to raise will make such a difference to Hearing Dogs’ work. We very quickly sold out of the cards!”
It has certainly been a very busy year in all aspects but especially in regards to charity events. To see what we have been up to in 2018 click here. We will soon be adding up the final numbers and revealing whether we have hit our target, so stay tuned for this exciting announcement.
